  1. It’s weird. Albania finally realizes they are running behind when it comes to the results.

  2. I’m happy with their choice, but I don’t see Albania really contending this year.

  3. After the winner’s performance I can see this song growing on me. The chorus is especially strong. We have to see if they keep that song of course for the contest. I hope they do tbh at this point. It’s a 7+ at my books for now. But a true pity for Enxhi…Albania could go the non-predictable way here with something IMO better.

    Good luck anyway !

  4. First 2016 esc entry (if not changed)
    6+/10 from me
    Good luck !

  5. “Përrallë” (or Perrelli as I’ll probably happen to call it again and again in the future) is a quite good and strong dramatic rock entry. It’s a (8/12) for now but could grow. It’s the way better than that lame thing they sent last time, and I hope they won’t switch song now.

  6. So I’ve checked the winning song on youtube using the semi’s performance and… hm… was she any favorite? Then I fear this must have been an awful Fik edition…

    I dont like it at all, and that’s being polite. Something like a 3- for me. It’s dull, poorly performed, poor vocals (more shouty than rocky) and uninspired. Worse, it sounds like the last three Albanian esc entries by now…

    As for results… A new Hersi flop coming our way and I do fear an awful english revamp…

  7. For those who missed it: here is the whole Top 10:

    1. Eneda Tarifa – “Përrallë”
    2. Aslajdon Zaimaj – “Merrmë që sot”
    3. Flaka Krelani – “S’je për mu”
    4. Klodian Kaçani & Rezarta Smaja – “Dashuri në përjetësi”
    5. Enxhi Nasufi – “Infinit”
    6. Nilsa Hysi – “Asaj”
    7. Dilan Reka – “Buzëqesh”
    8. Teuta Kurti – “Në sytë e mi”
    9. Renis Gjoka – “Ato që s’ti them dot”
    10. Evans Rama – “Flakë”

  8. It will get through a song check on ESC Song Reviews one of these days, but I have only heard it once.

    My first association is the Albanian entry from 2011, “Feel the Passion”, but I will have to hear it some more times, before I can say anything constructive. It is clearly not without interesting elements.

    Personally I think I would prefer a more raw and unpolished performance of it.

  9. My Eurovision 2016 top 1:

    1. Albania

  10. I obviously did not make it back home in time for the Albanian final. LOL Good luck to Eneda, who tops my ESC 2016 list for now! :)
    This song won’t get them anywhere imo … :(
